focusmurdock do you have a check engine light ? if so getting those codes can help diagnose your problem
Their both the same. Your right. I ended up using the one that came attached. Sold old one. It was working when I sold it. Then once I installed motor, that trans was bad (no reverse, 3-4 gear). Then the guy who bought mine says shortly after that one died. Not sure how well these trans are! Cr@p. So, I just opted for a brand new trans with a 24/24k mile warranty. Couldn't beat the deal. $1250 installed out the door! Shifts really good now. A lot firmer than old trans.

I also had a check engine light. But, not at first.
-After zetec swap, car never ran right.
-Was a member of the "#2 dropped valve seat" club...Twice! Now a SPI->Zetec club member.
